I am wearing a nude look today. I started with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Quick Sand. I hated this color alone but, it's so pretty in the bottle. So I picked up Essie's Nude Beach (pale, sheer, shimmer color) and applied two coats on top of the Quick Sand. This is a beautiful look together. I am glad I didn't give up on this polish and let Essie save the day! Pictures show inside and outside lighting.
